|1 July 2016||Game Server Manager Update|
|Changes in 220.127.116.11|
- Added a new feature: automatic update checking. This will periodically (configurable check interval) check via SteamCMD for any potential updates to the game. If an update is found it will apply the update and restart the server. This also has a configurable delay from when an update is found to when it is applied, allowing you to send (for example, "say") commands via the telnet client to warn users in advance.
- Added a manual "Game Update Checker" button to the "Quick Tasks" menu, which will tell you if an update is available and also display the version of your local game and the one available via SteamCMD.
- Added countdown to next update check to the statusbar.
- Improved the statusbar and "quick tasks" with icons and cleaned up messages to look clearer and less cluttered.
- Fixed minor bug where if Telnet was selected as a means to shutdown and it cannot be reached, "perform maintenance" would fail to shut it down.
- "Check counter" now always resets when the server program is started.
- Added additional feedback to the statusbar for when a backup, restarts, updates and checks are in progress.
- Added a Telnet status label to the built-in Telnet client tab.
- Additional cosmetic icons added for certain buttons.
- A few other minor changes and fixes.
